Ugly Boat, with Cool Note Worthy cool features

Just stumbled on some Cool features on an Ugly boat ~ competition to MasterCraft, Holy crap some very innovative features, and ergonomics for a comfy Butt ugly boat. Hope MasterCraft takes note: and incorporates similar creator features but with their cool, sleekyness style. The competition has it half right, MasterCraft hopefully will jump past and way forward. I can just tell you the competition has as of now an all electric boat drive…so so in battery life, but the seating and creature features I can dig. With out mentioning by brand, can search for gs22e boat. Besides electric, maybe in 10 years the norm 50/50 the world is about to change cars, boats, bikes and planes. What I liked was the seating that flips up in and around the boat to face the back, Drivers cockpit, ballast system, wave adjust inside the boat and outside the boat on the water by the surfer. I'm only bring this up…to let MasterCraft know when people see it, they will want it…MasterCraft should be jumping on this, and taking serious note…but don't make them Butt ugly like them…Theirs looks like a 70's error Butt ugly.

Agreed but for the guy with enough money to think he needs a ski boat that will probably only use it for an hour of surfing Per wethen the rest of the time taking it to dinner, it’s probably a good choice.

It is 7.5 miles to the marina from our house and 115 steps down from driveway to our dock. We never take ski boat out for more than a couple hours at a time, since there is also a pontoon boat and a few standup jetskis to play with. This would probably work pretty well for us, would just need to run 240V down to the dock. No more carrying jerry cans up and down 115 steps.

Electric propulsion great for torque, run time not bad for someone like me.. I am sure MC has looked at this. I dont like the idea of the charger.. wonder how its protected for those times its dropped in the water, gfci prolly.

Battery trech has to catch up, so you can spend all day on water.

Nice step forward from early electric boats that offered an hour.

Great technology marketing statement and display.

I’m more interested in the fact they’re using yanmar diesel. That’s genius. 250hrs between oil changes, microscopic fuel burn?

I was going to make a 3 paragraph response, but I will save my time and just say Drill baby drill.

Also hope you enjoy your $15,000 price tag on new batteries every 5 years.

Hell to the yes. Too bad MC missed out on the Yanmar team up. It would be cool to say your MC had a CAT diesel though.

I love the idea and the benefits that are apparent. I think you would most definitely need a FAE for a diesel power plant.

Most freshwater marinas don't carry diesel at the dock, at least in my experience, which would be a pain for a lot of people. For us on the little lakes, we have to run cans back and forth for ours. Another thing to worry about is the inevitable aftertreatment systems that will be required once these become popular.

When MC had diesels back in ~2006? it was an extra 24K on the boat will be curious to see what the engine costs.

I haul all my own fuel anyway with the biggest issue being that diesel tends to be messier to transport - spills remain greasy/oily in the truck bed vs. gasoline.

But the lack of explosive risk and the reduced evaporation/increased stability it would be great. Wonder what my ZO settings would be for a diesel prostar
